Tell us about your most recent Edinburgh show

It was a breathlessly hilarious take on modern married life. An incredible piece that transgresses comedy and moves into the realm of existentialism. Or an hour of the best stuff I could scrape together. Up to you which you believe. I'd like this answer to be like 'Life of Pi'.

If you could have written any other show from the festival, whose would it be and why?

Seann Walsh's because he got responses the likes of which I have never seen from an audience. He made me realise that I needed to re calibrate my aspirations of audience feedback. And he's making more money than me.

Did you get up to anything fun besides performing?

How are you going to make your act work for the radio?

If they don't realise I'm Asian from my name then I'm finished because that's the whole act

Are you hoping to do more radio in future?

Definitely. It's an exciting format for people who can't get on television.

Apart from Fresh from the Fringe, have you got any other projects we should watch out for?

Continued use of positive discrimination to get me more opportunities

And finally, are you taking your show anywhere else?

I'm doing three nights at Soho Theatre from 31st October - 2nd November
